HeatSeekers comes to Horsham
23 Feb 2010
HORSHAM District Council is supporting an innovative new carbon reduction programme which will involve heat loss images of homes in Horsham being captured.
From Monday 1 March for two weeks a specially adapted vehicle equipped with thermal imaging technology will be visiting the streets around Horsham town.
The HeatSeekers vehicle will be working between the hours of 7pm and midnight capturing heat loss images. The vehicle is clearly identifiable with flashing lights and carries a surveying sign across the back.
Thermal imaging technology only captures heat loss from the front elevation of the property and cannot penetrate walls or windows. Therefore people, objects or activities will not be recorded.
Working in partnership with Mark Insulation and the Energy Saving Partnership, HeatSeekers combines thermal imaging technology with discounted insulation. Insulation is a great way to reduce carbon emission and reduce fuel bills. Cavity wall insulation alone can save up to £115 from fuel bills and around 610kgs of carbon emissions.
Surveyors will return to Horsham a few weeks later to visit homeowners and offer discounted cavity wall and loft insulation. For homeowners on low incomes, insulation may be available for free.
Homeowners that don’t wish to participate in the scheme can opt out by calling HeatSeekers on 0800 111 4968.
Further information about the scheme is available directly from HeatSeekers on 0800 111 4968, or by contacting Gill Daniel at Horsham District Council on 01403 215281 or emailing email@example.com.
